Friday TV Ratings 12/15/23: National Christmas Tree Lighting and Daytime Emmy Awards Low, WWE SmackDown and Shark Tank Slip (UPDATED w/Analysis)

Ratings Analysis: Few tuned into CBS on Friday night as neither a broadcast of the National Christmas Tree Lighting (0.18) nor a showing of The 50th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards (0.15) impressed in the Adults 18-49 demographic. Fox's WWE Smackdown (0.55, -0.08) and ABC's Shark Tank (0.34, -0.02) weakened but remained at the top of the pack. 20/20 (0.26, -0.07) also slid but was well above NBC's Dateline (0.17, -0.04). The peacock network also had a rerun of Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors (0.23). The CW had a Hollywood Christmas Parade (0.06) but forgot to send the invitations. 

Finals Update: All shows held their preliminary rounded rating.
